lyrics

You didn't need to tell me how easy things have been for me
Squeeze machines hum their dull protection like a wall
You spoke to me like I was no-one but you said everything babe
You said think about it and I thought about how I looked small

So I thought about myself it's the easy way I'm an easy lay
But the way things were I had to think about you
I knew I'd gash open under the steel you're built upon
But you didn't and I knew what you'd been through

You know the sun shines on the surface
It's easy to hide when you're under it's light
You took me deeper down than I wanted to go
And I see on your own it's an empty night

You see I've got this thing about bodies
Bodies trying to hide the real person from me
I try to relate to people I look in every orifice for their soul
But I end up talkin' to jelly

So I'm walking around on the tops of things, yeah I know
And the whole world is revolving underneath me and I'm watching it like it was on some kind of cinema screen
The cinema is air conditioned and I thought of all the stale air piped through
I don't wanna breathe like that, emotion's what we need

You know the sun shines on the surface
It's easy to hide when you're under it's light
You took me deeper down than I wanted to go
I see on your own it's just an empty night

Everything you are exists outside of you
That means on your own you ain't nothing
I ain't gonna come round and preach destruction on your door baby
'Cos if it's good enough for you, well that's something

If it's good enough for you it's good enough for me
'Cos i never claimed to be anything but run of the mill
Ask me how it feels I should know
Ask me how it feels now run of the mill
